Looking for information on manufacture date and approx. value. It's a bit rusty, but it's in one piece. 4" barrel, serial number 13574.
Thank you, you were correct about the serial number. Just curious about the value, I know it isn't worth a lot especially in this condition.You have an Iver Johnson 3rd Model 2nd Variation Hammerless Safety Automatic manufactured in 1921. There should be an I prefix under the left grip. The patent stamp on the butt was used on the 2nd Variations. The serial number you provided would have fallen under a 1st Variation which had a B prefix which had a different patent stamp on the butt.
It is chambered in .32 S&W and is considered a smokeless frame and should be safe for modern smokeless ammunition once you have it checked out by a competent gunsmith.
